guys to protect the fat guys and corporate jets and big super rich. you're expendable now, crack thinkers. don't you understand? they play you against the poor and you're skpentable now. let those guys handle it. they got to protect the big guys. >> now know, that is coming from john mccain whose campaign might be compared to custard, except custer's came out better than mccain's did. in 2012 a conservative will be elected so i think that will speak for itself. his his brand was she lacks in 2007 within 2008. mine won the house of representative by record numbers in 2010. >> yeah, but now your brand of conservative is told, get your butts in line. don't get too big for yourself. because you've done your job. you're saving the corporate jet guys. you're closing in making sure to protect the loops holes. now just shut up and let us handle it, we've got movies it watch. thank you judson phillips. thank you for being here with me. >> thank you for having me. >> hosts of the bill press show on sirius radio, gentlemen, it is quite interesting, looks like mr. boehner is trying to get a
for a revenue hike. >> i disagree with that. >> you're still fighting that fight? >> look, the big grand bargain is still on the table. that deal is there if the speaker wants to return to the table and negotiate it. we came very close. the president and the speaker did. and that opportunity still exists. secondly, the helpful proposal senator reid put out does not include up front the tough issues of entitlement reform or tax reform, it creates a committee that would look at those issues on a fast-track basis by the end of the year. that's not possible, we prefer one that does it all at once. however this turns out if we don't get the tough issues addressed because they're essential to address the deficits and long-term debt we're going to return to the debate. because the public supports a balanced approach. it's not the right way to do this if we don't ask sacrifice from everybody. not just one sector or a limited number of sectors from the society. >> let's listen to what the president said last night, to voice support for a bipartisan deal. let's listen. >> the american people may have vote
come back from europe, there's a disparages disbelief. last thursday there was a big meeting about the euro zone crisis. whatever you think of the plan they come up, however, they all came together, came up with a plafç to avert crisis. looking at washington's politicians and thinking, hey, hang on a minute, they're as -- >> didn't you run a bureau -- >> i was in italy last week in fact. the analogy is apt. the difference is the market shook italy two weeks ago into doing something. they pass add 40 billion euro austerity plan, because the market freaked out. >> and in england as well. we held that deficit reduction, because we were worried about the market. here? >> i want to go back to jonathan's point, and this is -- i think people are trying to understand the implications. because america is the reserve currency of the world, because all the oil, the commodities, everything that exists, that china sells to brazil, that saudi arabia sells to europe is priced in u.s. dollars. it is incredibly unclear to what the implication of not paying it, because it is the only currency. beyo
, but if a shrunken version of the boehner big does -- or if they go to an emergency extension, the president will be right back in the same predicament he's in right now. i think a lot of people are upset. they blame the republicans more than the democrats for the gamesmanship, but the fact is the republicans have also backed the president into a corner, even if they're doing it in a way that's not popular. >> i want you to analyze they two possibilities, one the president could give away more of the store, more spending cuts, maybe enough to get us thus this increase. which would make the redhots happy. no tax increase at all. the other possibility is to marry what boehner wants right now with what mcconned was talking about next year, where next year it can be are can be raised by the president, only the house would have to come back with a two thirds veto, so it seems there is a possibility for compromise, but the easiest thing is for the president to throw the whole bomb game, say, you win this year, not next year. >> i don't think he can do thatç chris. when you get to a number that bi
will be here on set with us. >> this is big. >> huge. >> willie, who is going to be number one? are we looking at oklahoma? alabama? >> could be a tie situation. i have to say. we should point out vanderbilt got a great recruiting class. >> they did have a great recruiting class. >> they did. >> my understanding is the average s.a.t. just above 1300. unprecedented. for a co--ed football team.

>>> good wednesday everybody. i'm contessa brewer covering the big news coast to coast. the big story we're watching right now, debt, deficit, downgrade, deadlock. there's six more days until the august 2nd debt default deadline. really, does anybody think there's going to be a deal? >> it can pass the house and pass the senate. i hope the president will consider signing it into law. >> the speaker's proposal cannot pass the senate, will not reach the president's desk. >> another day, another delay as washington tries to come up with a debt deal. today's breaking news a bipartisan group did the math on both the duelling democratic and republican debt plans and both come up short on their projected savings goals. democrats put their bill on hold. while republicans scramble to rewrite theirs. >> things are very fluid. >> today's house vote tabled while gop leaders try to get reluctant freshman on board. >> i want a solution, not a deal. i don't think this goes far enough. >> does this keep us in the battle. >> john boehner has a group of people that believe their way is the correc

, i'm up, big. >> that's a great reference at 5:340. luke, i'm impressed. you must have been up and had your coffee. help us what's going on luke. you covered the hill every single day. people who watched this who aren't like us, kind of nerds following every moment of this get home from work and they say what happened exactly today, are we any further than we were. how can beget toward a deal by next tuesday? >> well, the big news that came out from yesterday was that john boehner was having a great difficult getting to 217 votes, the majority in his house on his plan to raise the debt ceiling. then he got bad news from the congressional budget office, which is a non-partisan budget office that scores these bills which says that his plan, which claimed to have saved over a trillion dollars in spending over the next ten years really only saved about $850 billion. so it didn't save nearly as much as he said it did and it actually back ended a lot of the savings. so in the first few years there was only about $5 billion worth of savings which is not acceptable to a lot of the tea
is anything more than a big wet kiss to the right wing, and -- and i mean the tea party. that's who i mean. it's too bad his caucus is being run by such a small number of people. >> what will happen between this very moment and a potential vote tomorrow is anyone's guess in the town that is washington, d.c. amid all the bickering and tinkering, the nation is just six days away from a first ever general default, and the treasury reiterating in a statement moments ago there is no guarantee the government can meet all its obligations after an august 2nd deadline, so what are the remaining options for our dysfunctional government? nbc's kristen welker is at the white house and let's also bring in luke russert on capitol hill. kristen, we know both sides are crafting their budget deals, both trying to take the high road, but are there any signs that the differences between the two sides are narrowing, and does it seem as though they may conflate these two plans? >> reporter: well, at this point we don't have any indication that they are going to conflate the two plans. we should say there are, of c
to the republicans? hell, it is a blank check. i mean, it ain't $4.7 trillion. you know how big this is? this is bigger than the health care bill and the stimulus package two times over. this is the largest can cut that's ever been proposed by any president in the history of the united states. and boehner turned it down. now, you tell me, do you think they really want to do a deal? now, this ship has left the harbor. but at a time, this is where the president was ready to go. and to visualize that and what it means to the american people is amazing. and what does boehner do? he comes back on national television and says that it's president obama who is creating the crisis atmosphere. >> obviously, i expect that bill can and will pass the senate and be sent to the president for a signature. and if the president signs it, the crisis atmosphere that he has created will simply disappear. >> let's see. i've never written one of these before. four -- how do you do that? do you just put a point there or do you do that? i've never written one this big. four point seven trillion and zero dollars
'm a little bit of a restaurant of history. and there are a lot of real big things that have been gone in this country by executive order. president truman up until this point my favorite president of all times. integrated the armed services by executive order. couldn't get the congress to do it. there seemed to be little support for it my hometown senator left the democratic party buzz he did it and ran for president as a states rider. but the president did it. it was a bold move and as far as i can tell people like colin powell are very thankful that president truman did what he did. >> in the current case let me ask you about the whip count you were the whip and still a great vote counter are you and steny hoyer and nancy pelosi going to give john boehner an exit strategy with some democrat votes since it's clear he doesn't have enough votes just relying on republicans? >> if he were to come to the floor with a bipartisan bill, i think he would get bipartisan support. right now he's running this on his own within his own caucus. he is not involving nancy pelosi or steny hoyer or you
the republicans control the house doesn't mean anything in the big picture other than being very successful in getting the democratic senate and the white house to start talking about spending reductions as opposed to just raising the debt ceiling, so we have been successful that way. but ultimately because the's di don't have a parliamentary system -- >> you just said this word, i just saw jim demint this morning on another news program talk about, you know, no, you know, said no to the boehner plan and he's arguing against the boehner plan, campaigning against it. what do you tell folks who look up to jim demint in that republican conference of yours? >> well, first of all, i think the majority of our colleagues believe that it's important to give our leadership support, number one, number two, when people really stop to think of how far we have moved the discussion from raising taxes to only lifting the debt limit to being able to cut spending at the same rate, then they have to consider it as being quite successful, i think. but at the end of the day, i do believe that my colleagues thi
up with some kind of short-term extension, no big deal, and then everybody's going to blame everybody else for the fact we didn't get anything done. you talk about the gang of six, there's a gang of 300 million out there, the american people, who are completely fed up with this. they elect representatives to take care of housekeeping chores, and this is a grand housekeeping chore, and they are failing at the process of doing it. >> howard, i'm wondering, does the same thing go for -- it is my sense it does. boehnor is actually not the most disappointed guy in the capitol, he knew he was putting together something that wasn't real and that cbo shooting it down is not some big shock to him, that he was just putting together to claim he was putting something together. >> that's true too. maybe there was a smidgen of sincerity there and knowing him and having covered him, but yeah, they both want to be able to say after we all go off the edge of a cliff that it was the other person's fault, and that's exactly the situation we're in right now, and it's a dangerous and unsettling one, begin
. the president has made clear that he believes that this has been an opportunity to do something big and historic that requires political will by democrats and republicans, a willingness to take heat from your base as opposed to placate your base, but it requires a will on both sides, and with that i'll take your questions. mr. feller. >> thanks, jay. two questions. we're obviously 24 hours closer to potential calamity here. is the white house any closer itself to a strategy and what's the president doing to achieve it? >> as you know, congress needs to take action. we have been intensely engaged in negotiations, in conversations, in proposals and counterproposals with congress at a variety of different levels. the talks led by the vice president, the private conversations and negotiations that the president had with the speaker of the house. we have continuedç even since e speaker of the house walked away from those -- from that potential compromise last friday, we've continued to have conversations with all levels, with democrats, republicans, principals and staffers in search of a solution t

through default, it won't be a big deal. now, john boehner doesn't believe that, mitch mcconnell doesn't believe that, but boehnor seems unable to move toward any kind of agreement, partly because he's worried about his own fate in this caucus or he's worried that if he puts together a deal that is supported by too many democrats and not enough republicans, he's also threatened. so i think it's that internal politics in the republican caucus that's blocking this. i think what might happen is that mitch mcconnell may decide to let harry reid pass his plan without threatening a filibuster. now, if he did that, the democrats could get it through with a majority. that's how most democracies do things, but not our senate, and that may set up grounds for a solution. that's about the only thing i could see right now that might begin to get us out of this or at least begin real negotiations again. >> so, speaking of that, of the idea there is, in fact, a majority rule, and that there's so much politics going on here, look, we saw this reuters poll indicating a majority of voters favor presiden
